In Topic: Fixing this mess....

I'm all for trading Howard simple because of the cap space.  He's not playing like a $5 mil goalie.  We could get a $1 mil goalie to play just as well.  On that subject, in 2007 we made it to the conference finals with an aging Hasek making less than a mil and then back to back trips to the finals with Osgood making a little over $1 mil.  Many teams over the past 10 years have made it to the Finals with goalies that didn't make a lot of money.  If saving that money helps us boost the defense, I'm all for it.  Sign Al Montoya in the off season or see how cheap Cam Ward could be.  Then go after Luke Schenn and/or Alex Goligoski or Keith Yandle.

Agreed, look at the defense that were in front of those goalies. This years defense would have chased Carey Price.

"If I'm Holland". Sorry kids, he's not going to fix this mess he made it. We've lost to much talent in the the front office, not just on the ice.

In Topic: Losing Streak affecting Babcock's Decision?

07 April 2015 - 08:32 AM

The time for Babcock to move is here. I can see him going to WIN/CAL/EDM. Why, first closer to where he lives now. After the death of your father, you start to think about those things differently. Second, all have decent young cores to which to build and the managment in any of those places should be pretty willing to give him the player personnel power he wants. Back home in Canada without the enormous cluster that TOR would be and the build up instead of rebuild may be more attractive.

Our best option for his replacement IS Bashill. For many and all of the aforementioned reasons and he would come in with a slightly lower level of expectations as apposed to another NHL coach. He get his make it or break it chance in what may be the perfect storm.

50% of our problem IMO has been Hollands penchant to sit on his hands in making moves to get us over the top. Like the deadline moves this year but I think they may have been a year or 2 late. We need someone in that position with his good qualities but a bit of a gamblers streak.
